ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st
in the obama administration. and peter feaver served on the national security council staff during the george w. bush administration. he's now a professor of political science and public policy at duke university. we thank you both for being with us. peter feaver, to you first. we heard governor romney today criticize the president broadly for not rejecting strongly enough america's influence in the world. yet when it came to specifics, we didn't hear many details. so let me just ask you about a couple of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. what exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about w
president obama, one of the things he did at the start of this administration was invest in strengthening our alliances and partnerships that have brought the international community around this strategy. this isn't just u.s. strategy. this is a tremendous international effort to impose these sanctions. the iranian currency has lost tremendous value over the last several weeks. the sanctions are biting and the policy is moving us in the right direction. >> woodruff: peter feaver, i do want to turn to several different parts. maybe we can come back to iran in a minute. on iraq we heard governor romney say that president obama moved too abruptly to pull the troops out. what would governor romney do differently? how much longer wouldhe have left u.s. troops in iran? >> i think if romney had been president for the last four years he would have handled the negotiations with iraq very differently. he would have been personally involved. president obama delegated it. and refused to maintain the close relations with prime minister maliki that president bush had. he delegated it to vice president
, there has been some bipartisanship on east asia. so the obama administration after flirting with a dierent policyn 20 returned to an emphasis on asia that had been there in the previous administration. there was an emphasis that involved strengthening our alliances with japan and india and presenting to china a clear choice about we will cooperate if they play by the rules of the game, but we will also demand that they play by the rules of the game. that strategy, which obama came to rather late, has been the strategy that we followed in the past. that's the straty that wl follow inhe future. the problem with president obama's pivot to asia is not that he's focusing on asia. he's underresourced the visit to asia. the big difference between a second term for president obama and a romney administration would be that romney's pledge to beef up the u.s. navy, which is the key service of interest to strengthen our position in asia. i think that's an important difference. >> woodruff: what about that resource question, michelle flour foi? noy. >> i think it requires reinvestment in the relation
.s. catholic of bishops to the obama administration rules and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, and this is the relevant in the room, both catholics disagree with the school teaching on contraception. >> i am one of those catholics. [laughter] in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and they have their freedoms, too, their religious freedom, in addition these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here attention of these different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first say that the church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their and please. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other catholics and many other proponents and religious liberty oppose the obama administration and regulation they then propose a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but the institution wouldn't have to pay for it. they call that a brilliant solu
've heard again and again from obama administration officials that the sanctions are beginning to bite and they should be given more time. >> bill: interesting. thank you. good to see you tonight. >>> the boat crash that killed 38 people now at the center of a criminal investigation. police in hong kong arresting seven crew members after a ferry and a large boat slamming into each other late yesterday. at least four children among the many victims there. officials say it appears the crew members on both vessels failed to follow proper procedure. but still no word on exactly what caused that crash. >>> jimmy hoffa is still out there somewhere. police in detroit say they've gotten back the results of tests from a suburban backyard. they were taking samples after a tipster said he thought he saw somebody bury a body 35 years ago. the question was, could it have been the former teamsters boss who disappeared in 1975? well, now we know it's not him. not only that, tests reveal nobody is buried in that backyard. no trace of human decomposition at all. so we go now back to square one. >>> pre
critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
economic policy as a campaign issue. the center for national policy on the obama administration's use of drone of strikes. >> i watched on c-span the various congressional hearings and deliberation and public policy on information that is put out by the various think tanks. i like to watch the main interviews that are on sund
is about a critique of the obama administration. that is a common topic of calendars. the critiques of the president public foreign policy. there are differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are subsequent. much to the surprise, even some of his own advisers at the time, but rather than backing away from he has continued to emphasize that and say basically that he has emphasize -- emphasize that descending supplies into afghanistan, which has become a significant issue. we're example, >> that is a serious difference. there are others as well. for example, how to stop iran from producing a nuclear weapon. it is not entirely clear. it is pretty hard to tell. >> host: good morning. we have a caller joining us. >> caller: how are you doing? thank you. i definitely agree with the lady talking about the foreign-policy issues. because i think that mitt romney is an opportunist. benjamin netanyahu on foreign policy, obama is actually steadfast -- you know, you talk to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours, so it's not like he has been dodging them. he
. as yet what are the noteworthy aspects of the last four years in the obama administration how much policy has been driven from the white house? some presidents give lip service to the cabinet government and in power and their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious to get a second obama term what we see the continuation of the pattern in which romney, how do you think that he would write things in terms of the relationship in the department and the white house? >> i think we have strayed some distance from the government in the sense that the white house staff has been built up with the lawyers of folks that had to cushion the president from the departments and agencies. sallai compare and contrast just be kind of low-level staffer under ronald reagan on the advanced staff and seeing the universe of high-profile kavanagh members who interjected at least from what i could see more directly with the president and now we have lawyers that kind of cushion the president and the deputy chief of staff of policy or whatever the case might be. and i think tha
president reagan did in the czech republic. president obama seems to have missed that. he comes into these things late. his own administration describes him as leading by following. you don't lead by following. if you're following, you're following. that's what we see in seyria. that's what we saw in libya, in egypt. and now we see tremendous confusion on the part of this administration about what's really going on in the middle east. you look at libya, it's a scandal. i mean, what happened with libya is an absolute scandal of the b biggest proportions. i think only because the campaign is going on is it being held back. the white house, it seems to me, knew there was real danger to that ambassador. not only did they provide the security necessary, it sounds to me that they reduced the security, which is astounding. i don't know if that's true. one congressman told me that. if that's true, that's astounding. >> you saw secretary of state madeleine albright call romney speech full of platitude and free of substance. >> i'm sure the former secretary of state would say that. the re
